It is a matter of budgeting the time. Example, I just peeked at email
when I SHOULD be on my way to the park to watch a Little League baseball

require great amounts of my time. I am trying to get some of my work time
devoted to linux time.

I suppose I will have a close look at what is going on and see if there is

Microsoft! Which end of the stick do you want today?
